How Do You Get the Best Senior Dining Deals?

Doesn’t the meal always taste better when you save a penny or two? Read these tips on how to get the best dining deals, senior discounts, and dining and restaurant discounts.

Tips to Get Best Restaurant Deals

  • ALWAYS ask for a senior restaurant discount – if you ask, you might get. If you don’t ask, you probably won’t get a discount. Many restaurants will not advertise the senior dining discount, due to fear of discrimination.
  • Order from the senior menu—portions are different, and the prices will be too.
  • Find out if your favorite restaurants have special days or times when meal prices are reduced. One day like this is YOUR BIRTHDAY! Mention it!
  • Sign up for the restaurant’s mailing list—often it will lead to special senior offers and discounts.
